Valerie Gray recognizes and appreciates good writing.  And she has a genuine talent for making it better.”

—Pamela Morsi, USA TODAY bestselling author

When I first met Valerie, I was an unpublished writer with my first manuscript in hand.  She guided that manuscript into novelhood, and did so with a commitment shown by very few editors in today’s demanding publishing industry.

Committed to excellence and devoted to fine writing, Valerie is a rare find as an editor.  New and experienced writers alike benefit from her skillful and tactful approach. I count myself privileged to have worked with her.”
